About 9 voluntary global targets
WHO "Global monitoring framework on NCDs" tracks implementation of the "NCD global action plan" through monitoring and reporting on the attainment of the 9 global targets for NCDs, by 2015, against a baseline in 2010.
Accordingly, governments are urged to (i) set national NCD targets for 2025 based on national circumstances; (ii) develop multisectoral national NCD plans to reduce exposure to risk factors and enable health systems to respond in order to reach these national targets in 2025; and (iii) measure results, taking into account the Global Action Plan.
